If you love a moving song, don’t miss Joe Crookston who delivers it all, the melodies, the lyrics, the energy, and a deep passion for exceptionally well-written songs. Joe is an artist, writer, guitar picker, painter, claw hammer guitar player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. Through stories of ruby red dresses, Tinian Island, Dylan Thomas, Taoist parables and drunken roosters you’ll be drawn in and deeply moved by Joe’s music. Joe’s first label album, Fall Down as the Rain, was selected by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of 2004's top 12 self-produced independent recordings, and Joe was awarded the International Folk Alliance “Album of the Year” for his 2008 release Able Baker Charlie and Dog. His songs have been recorded and performed by Irish harpers, a cappella gospel choirs, solo artists, and bluegrass bands. Joe has played many festivals, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.

At every festival I hope to find the gift of one artist whose songwriting and performance stand out. Joe Crookston was that gift for me this year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Stunning performance, great songs, and not a word wasted! -- David Francey, Ontario Songwriter
With all the performers out there, an artist has to go beyond good…and Joe does.”
